    • (Rose is in the box, on which Charlie is putting a few "finishing touches")
      Charlie: There, at last. It works!
      Rose: Oh, Charlie... if it works now, it'll break later; and if it doesn't break, nobody would want it; and if anybody did want it, somebody else would already own the patent...
      (Hh shuts the lid, cutting her off, then returns the box to Satan's uncle/the Deliveryman.)
      Deliveryman: Thanks, Charlie. You say it can't be opened now?
      Charlie: You'd have to destroy that box before you could open it now.
